If there are no public drop-off points near you, join this program, download a tracking code, and pay to ship your collections to TerraCycle.
Shipping tip: Make sure the tracking label with your QR code is visible on the package, and not covered, when the shipping label is attached.
All brands of blades and razors (systems and disposable units, and replaceable-blade cartridge units), rigid plastic packaging, and flexible plastic bag packaging
We encourage you to ship when your box is full of blades, razors, and plastic packaging to minimize the transportation carbon footprint for this program. You don’t need to clean the packaging before sending it to TerraCycle, but please remove as much residue as possible. UPS will not accept dripping packages, so please make sure your items are dry.
Once collected, the blades, razors, and plastic packaging are cleaned and separated by material. Metals are smelted into ingots for reuse, and plastics are melted down and turned into pellets, flakes, and other usable formats that can be remolded to make new recycled products, such as park benches and picnic tables.
